Here's a look at how we made the Superwoman #3 cover.
My initial sketches for the cover submitted to DC Comics. This featured the new Superwoman... now firmly in her role!
Roughs were drawn at 2" x 3" in my sketchbook using Warm Grey Copics then colored in Photoshop CS3.
Drawn in Light Blue and HB lead on 12" x 18" Bristol Board .
This went very fast, drew the figure first, then clouds, then background.
I know exactly how this will look in color so line art is there just as a basis for my colors.
Detail of my pencils.
Gave myself the information I need to color. Didn't labor over any of the line art.
Rachel Dodson inks over my pencils with a Windsor Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable #2 Brush and Higgins Black Magic Ink to ink the covers with.

Rachel nailed everything down. Background very simple...
Lovely hair lines!
